Dear Boris,

Thank you very much for your warm welcome and encouragement. I have been waiting to set up my e-mail account to send you few words, but you were faster.

I am very happy to join the Cortec family again as you said for the second time…

I am also very thankful for this opportunity and also very motivated to work hard to make some improvements for the company and at the same time to challenge my luck, as you said, to make my dreams come true.

These few days, week already, since I came back let’s say, we have visited ECOCORTEC in Beli and I was really impressed with company that you have built here in Croatia and at the same time very proud. People are nice and welcoming and the spirit is very positive and professional. Ivana and I have been going through product presentations and company organization.

Ivana showed me lab on FSB and already I have made appointment on GF with Dubravka for next week.

I am trying to “connect” with all Cortec news and case histories by checking the Cortec web site.

And as you said "Sky is the limit". Let’s go for it!

See you soon,

Ivana Lipošćak

Hello from Andrew Celli at Little Palm Island.

What a joy it has been spending time with you both on Little Palm Island! I hope we can connect for a little visit in Key West on Wednesday.

Hello Boris,

Mike and I were so happy to get to know you and Ines this weekend. You two are so much fun and we felt as if we have been friends for years. We look forward to crossing paths again and hope it is very soon. With only a few hours drive between us I'd say we have a great shot at making lots of fun memories together.

Hugs to you both!

All our best,

Ashley & Mike

Doug and I had such a nice time with you last evening. Thank you for showing us your home, your beautiful car, and showing us such welcoming hospitality at your country club with a lovely meal. Your partnership, and friendship, is very much appreciated and we look forward to getting together when you are back in town.

The opportunity for continued partnership is such an honor and we look forward to the next phase.

With much thanks and gratitude,

Hello Boris

Just want to send you a note and say thank you for the opportunity to have our sales meeting in Florida. The meetings were fantastic and it was so nice to see that the sun does shine again.

Thank you again

Boris and Ines,

In going back over the meeting, all I can say is WOW.

This success was earned the good old fashion way, hard work, innovation and brilliant minds doing what they do best.

This is so very impressive, you two are a brilliant team and things just keep getting better and better, and the best is still yet to come!!

It is an honor to be your friend and counsel:-)


Michael J. McGroarty  @ 09/02/2016 09:02:43

Hey Boris,

I talked to Chris Taddei this morning and heard you were in the offices Friday afternoon. I was sorry to miss you.

I did have some of the schnapps over the weekend. vWOWSER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That packed some punch - seriously meant for a cold winter night - or something like that.

Thanks again, Keep in touch.


Christopher Taddei  @ 08/02/2016 04:02:43

Hi Boris,

Thanks again for the update last week as well as the wonderful schnapps you brought in. I had some for the super bowl and really enjoyed it ! I love the packaging too !!!!

Michael Qiu  @ 02/02/2016 03:02:56

Agreed with you a hundred percent indeed, Boris.

The fond memory of our very first meeting in St. Paul on a very snowy day so long ago, while I was there for an appointment with someone else at Cortec who had been called away by urgent business, intending to get more information about Cortec on behalf of my friends and former colleagues from Chinese Ministry of Oil, then you courteously invited me in for a chat, which lasted hours instead of minutes that I anticipated, started not only the lasting friendship but also rewarding business associations.

We have not spent much time together over the years, yet I've always been fascinated by the mutual understanding, the warmth and privity that bonded us despite the physical distance. I shall cherish and treasure our friendship, brotherhood as well as comradeship always.

Take care and with warmest regards,

I've finally got a minute to reach out and say thank you for such a great WSM. You've built a wonderful company with some great partners worldwide.

Take care my friend. Thanks again.
